Lahmacun Turkish Pizza
This Turkish-style pizza is a Turkish flat bread layered with a fresh sauce composed of tomatoes, sweet bell peppers, and minced lamb cooked with a flavorful selection of Mediterranean spices. It is normally garnished with fresh salad and a creamy garlic sauce and or a tangy zesty hot red pepper sauce. It is a really light meal, but filling and flavorful. I find it worth the time to make if I can't get it from my favorite Turkish bakery in my old neighborhood in Amsterdam. For the best flavor, make the topping the night before you make the pizza.

Additional condiments include chili sauce, harissa, or Tabasco. In place of the cabbage, you can combine 1 cup lettuce, thinly sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, and red onion.
To assemble, arrange cabbage, lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, or onion down one side of the pizza. Drizzle with garlic sauce and hot sauce, and roll up. Eat and enjoy--but watch out for the drip. You won't want to miss a bite!
If you can't find ground lamb in your area, you may substitute ground beef.
